This review is from: Corel WinDVD Pro 11 - Product Key Card
Cons: First off, I installed it, that seemed to go well. Launch it, the splash screen pops up then nothing else happens.
So, I have a chat with my friend(Google).
First thing I found said to start it up without internet so you can enter your "serial number"(activate).
Second thing I found said to uninstall/reinstall.
Did all that and still just the splash screen.
So, I think, hmm, maybe it's because I didn't regiester on their site and all that jazz.
Go to there site to register my product it tells me "There is a problem with your registration request.
The serial number may not be properly entered or may already be registered against your account. Please review your request again.".
Ok, so then I set out to get into contact with their "customer service"
(after I tried the code with dashes with out dashes and made sure I had all letters and numbers correct) about registering a product.
Find the form about help with registering a product, I put my serial number(required), give a discription of the problem and where I had it.
Next three days is me answering those things over again, then the last email is a request for a screen shot of where I'm entering
the serial number on there site and the error message it gives. They end up registering it on there end. But the fact it took 2 - 3 days
to do it is a little much.
Even after a week of install/uninstall, using different methods: antivirus/firewalls off/on, making sure the registry cleaned (in an article in their help section) it still doesn't work. OH, also upgraded from Win7 to Win10 to see if that would help since they released a "patch" for Win10.
Other Thoughts: Long story short, don't bother even Newegg will pay you to take it.
I'd like to mention I owned the serial number for 6 months before I used it. Was waiting for a blu-ray drive to go onsale at a price
I was willing to pay.
Apologies for any all typos, misspells or other wise grammatical problems. Hard to proof read in these tiny windows. It's 2015 Newegg, add a Preview button.
Pros: It worked in my Kodak ESP C310 with little trouble.
Cons: The color cartridge spewed me with ink when I removed the protective film from the ink area.
Other Thoughts: I recommend you take them outside and wear some thing you don't care too much about. Just in case you squirted with ink like I did.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill RCDV-11007 - Black, 10-Foot DVI-I Male to VGA Male Cable
Cons: Graphics are grainy making text hard to read.
(see other thoughts)
Other Thoughts: I thought my old 19" Dell monitor was going out. Turns out it was just this cable. Unplugged a 17" Dell that was my main display after my wife found a 900p monitor in a swap pile. Any who the 17" that looked awesome with the DVI cable that came from dell hooked up has the same grainy look as the old 19". So.. not a monitor problem but a cable problem.
I do recommend buying it onsale and having it for a spare if you're like me and only have plain VGA/DSub cables and monitors laying around. Since the newer graphics cards don't have DSub. Or atleast my HD 7850 doesn't.
